Global Business Incubator Programme – Foundation Industries with India

Businesses are now invited to apply for the Foundation Industries Global Business Incubator Programme with India.


The Global Business Innovation Programme (GBIP) – Foundation Industries is organised by Innovate UK and delivered by Innovate UK EDGE.

The three-phase, competitive programme, consists of a five-day in-market visit with India’s thriving Foundation Industries landscape, and intensive pre- and post-visit training and support by our Innovation and Growth Specialists.

Why India? Foundation Industries in India is seeing growing demand for products due to India’s increasing population, expanding market and associated large-scale public-sector investments. India’s Foundation Industries face similar sustainability challenges to their UK counterparts with high dependence on fossil fuels and virgin raw materials and are looking for similar solutions.

This initiative is relevant for businesses that focus on delivering sustainability solutions for the foundation industries sector in metals, glass, paper, cements, ceramics and chemicals to enable energy and resource efficiency. These may be achieved through:

  • Enabling technologies – digital solutions, sensors and controls, heat recovery systems, value added processes for waste streams
  • New business models
  • New and efficient production processes
  • New supply chain models

The benefits of being involved with this in market programme include visits  with well-developed innovation communities and ecosystems in India to accelerate the timelines on achieving more sustainable materials production to achieve net zero.
